Steve Wynn+The Dream Syndicate, Matthew Sweet set fall tour; Wynn's 'Kerosene Man,' 'Dazzling Display' reissues out now

The Dream Syndicate (featuring founding member Steve Wynn, pictured center) and Matthew Sweet join together for a brief West Coast run of live dates in October.

This co-billed tour will find the musicians alternating the headlining slot each night. Sweet's current guitarist, Jason Victor, joins his classic rhythm section of Ric Menck (drums) and Paul Chastain (bass); he'll also be filling the guitar position for The Dream Syndicate. 

Both acts were based in Los Angeles in their respective heydays. Sweet is best known for his alt-rock hits "Girlfriend, "Sick of Myself" and "I've Been Waiting." 

Influential '80s psychedelic pop rockers The Dream Syndicate became critical and fan favorites immediately with their debut full-length alternative rock album, The Days of Wine and Roses. Last year, Wynn put out How Did I Find Myself Here with the current lineup. He records and tours as a solo artist and with his other band, The Baseball Project.

Sweet's latest effort is Tomorrow's Daughter. He is releasing deluxe, two-LP vinyl editions of his classic albums Girlfriend, Altered Beast/Son Of Altered Beast and 100% Fun, each with extensive new liner notes, available for pre-order now.

A special Black Friday Record Store Day LP, Wicked System of Things, is set for release on Nov. 23 (Record Store Day).

Sweet said, "This feels like a really good time for me, and I feel lucky and grateful to still be doing what I love to do.


"When I meet young people and they ask for advice about a career in music, I always say, 'Do music because it's what you love to do, and because you'd do it no matter what happens,'" he concluded. "I've tried to keep that attitude about it, because that's always worked for me. I just try to keep doing my thing and keep believing."

U.S. Tour dates: 

10/16 - Portland @ Wonder Ballroom
10/17 - Seattle @ The Neptune
10/19 - San Francisco @ The Fillmore
10/20 - Sacramento @ Harlow's
10/21 - Los Angeles @ The Fonda
10/22 - Solana Beach, CA @ Belly Up*

East Coast dates TBA

In related news, Omnivore Recordings reissued a pair of mighty fine Wynn albums this past spring. His successful, critically-acclaimed 1990 solo debut Kerosene Man featured contributions by Steve Berlin of Los Lobos, D.J. Bonebrake of X, Howe Gelb of Giant Sand, Johnette Napolitano of Concrete Blonde (an old friend that also appeared on the last two Dream Syndicate releases), among others.  

Wynn recruited Joe Chiccarelli because he admired the producer's previous work with Stan Ridgway. Then, as the Los Angeles singer/guitarist explains in the new CD's liner notes, he sifted through some old songs that didn't fit with Dream Syndicate, like “Carolyn,” which dated back to 1983. The jangly delight of a single eventually got play on MTV.

Kerosene Man was the first time Wynn had the chance to utilize string arrangements and he reveled in using violins, cellos, not to mention vibes, baritone sax and more.

"We wanted to create a big sound, an orchestral feeling that would serve the song and my voice above everything," he writes. The lush, melancholic "Tears Won't Help" made the Billboard Modern Rock chart top 10. 

From the rollicking title track - driven by Robert Lloyd's barrelhouse piano and Robert Mache's sly slide guitar work - and the compelling duet with Napolitano on "Conspiracy of the Heart" to the sinister "Something to Remember Me By" and the aforementioned singles, there are plenty of gems on the album. At the time of the original release, I wasn't familiar with Dream Syndicate, but when Rhino Records sent me an advance copy, I was immediately hooked. 

Full lyrics and credits are included on the new remastered and expanded reissue. The half dozen bonus live tracks from 1990 were recorded in Washington D.C. and Los Angeles (on much-revered public radio station KCRW) and previously only available on a rare promo LP. There's a manic take on John Fogerty's "Graveyard Train" and a hypnotizing organ-led cover of Bob Dylan's "The Groom's Still Waiting at the Altar."

Two years later, Wynn followed it up with Dazzling DisplayChiccarelli returned to the fold, along with players in Wynn's touring band. Inspired by French pop music of the 1960s, Dusty Springfield, The Hollies and The Turtles, he had assistance in the studio from the latter's Flo & Eddie, R.E.M.'s Peter Buck, The Bangles' Vicki Peterson, Napolitano and John Wesley Harding. 

Crafted during the height of grunge rock, Dazzling Display mixed effervescent alt-pop ("Tuesday," "Dandy in Disguise," "Close Your Eyes") with moody numbers (the title track, "Halo," the looped rhythm of Napolitano duet "Bonnie and Clyde"), rockers ("405," "Drag") to fine effect. "Drag" hit the top 30 at Modern Rock radio and the video got on MTV, while “Tuesday” became a hit in other countries. Unfortunately, the album wasn't embraced as much as its predecessor. 

I finally caught Wynn in concert for the first time in 1992 at Bogart's in Long Beach, Calif. and recall an energetic set where all the songs came across strongly. 

The remastered and expanded version of Dazzling Display includes Wynn's liner notes recollections, lyrics, full credits and 1990-93 live radio sessions done in America, Holland and Amsterdam, comprising Sonic Youth, Paul Simon, Lou Reed and Bob Dylan covers and two Wynn compositions. Both reissues are highly recommended.

Phil Collins box set of studio contributions coming in September

"Some would say I've lived a charmed life. I've done what I wanted for most of it, and got paid well for doing something I'd have done for nothing. Playing the drums. During that time I've played with most of my heroes, most have become close friends. Over these 4 CD's you'll find a mere smattering of those moments. I thank the artists for letting me put this CD together, no easy task! Love, PC"

He has been a member one of one of Britain's most significant rock bands and one of the world's biggest male solo stars, but Phil Collins was always eager to collaborate with an eclectic range of artists. Spanning drums, vocals, production, songwriting, and more, Phil Collins' many talents have been employed by some of his biggest musical heroes.

Now Phil Collins has compiled a 59-track collection of his collaborative highlight in the shape of PLAYS WELL WITH OTHERS. The compilation will be released as a 4-CD boxed set and as a digital download on September 28.

The following week, Collins will begin his "Not Dead Yet, Live!" tour on October 5 in Ft. Lauderdale, his first major North American tour in 12 years. Full itinerary listed below.

It's a boxed set about the byways of a career that stretches from the ersatz psychedelia of Flaming Youth, through the legendary 70s recordings with Brand X, Brian Eno, Robert Fripp and John Cale and into the superstar era of the 80s, when Collins became the go-to man for legends in need of a fresh lease of life. It extends into the years when he had the status to do whatever he wanted. Form a big band with Quincy Jones conducting and Tony Bennett singing? Why the hell not!

The title comes from a joke gift that happened to contain a profound truth. Chester Thompson, the man who became Genesis's day-to-day drummer once Collins had become the frontman, arranged to have a special birthday present made for him. It wasn't a hugely expensive gift - just a t-shirt. On the front, Thompson had a slogan printed to reflect his bandmate's willingness to take his drums along to pretty much any session, his pleasure in working as a producer to help musicians he respected make the records they wanted: "Plays well with others."

Collins started branching out in the mid-70s to delve into parts of his musical taste that didn't fit with Genesis's sound. The band's producer John Anthony recognized Collins as a musician with the appetite and ability to adapt to different musical environments. "He was producing all kinds of records, and he would use me because he loves good drumming," remembers Collins. "We used to go into Trident Studios at midnight, just for the fun of playing, and go home at six or seven in the morning. I enjoyed the possibility of just playing and occasionally being paid for it, and occasionally not. It wasn't for money, it was just for the hell of playing."

Working on Peter Gabriel's third solo album resulted in Collins and engineer Hugh Padgham stumbling across the gated reverb drum sound that would dominate 80s pop. That was first heard on Gabriel's track "Intruder" and later when hit the charts when used in the drum fill in Collins' signature hit "In The Air Tonight."

In the wake of his solo success with the Face Value album, Collins became sought after by already successful artists who needed to do something different, helping Adam Ant, Eric Clapton, Robert Plant, and Abba's Frida into new eras in their careers.

PLAYS WELL WITH OTHERS is a set that captures the dizzying variety of one of the most successful stories in music history. That's what has earned him the respect of so many musicians of so many different genres - the Urban Renewal tribute album, represented here by Lil' Kim, being a classic example.

David Bowie box set news

Some exciting news for fans of all eras of Bowie's career like myself...

Parlophone and Rhino Records has announced DAVID BOWIE LOVING THE ALIEN (1983-1988), the fourth in a series of boxed sets spanning his career from 1969.

The follow-up to the awarding winning and critically acclaimed David Bowie Five Years (1969-1973), David Bowie Who Can I Be Now? (1974-1976), and David Bowie A New Career In A New Town (1977-1982) will be released on October 12.

DAVID BOWIE LOVING THE ALIEN (1983-1988) will contain a brand new production of the 1987 album Never Let Me Down by Bowie producer / engineer Mario McNulty with new instrumentation by Bowie collaborators Reeves Gabrels (guitar), David Torn (guitar), Sterling Campbell (drums), Tim Lefebvre (bass) as well as string quartet with arrangements by Nico Muhly and a guest cameo by Laurie Anderson on "Shining Star (Makin' My Love)."

The 11-CD box, 15-LP vinyl set, and standard digital download boxed set is named after the opening track from the Tonight album and includes newly remastered versions of David's most commercially successful period Let's Dance, Tonight, Never Let Me Down (Original and 2018 Versions), the live album Glass Spider (Live Montreal '87), the previously unreleased Serious Moonlight live album, a collection of original remixes entitled Dance and the non-album / alternate version / b-sides and soundtrack music compilation Re:Call 4.

Exclusive to each of the boxed sets is Never Let Me Down (2018), a new production of the 1987 album. The seeds of this new reimagining of the albums were first sown in 2008 when Bowie asked McNulty to remix the track "Time Will Crawl" and record new drums by longtime Bowie drummer Sterling Campbell along with strings. The track was issued on the iSelect compilation to much acclaim and, in the notes for that record, David remarked "Oh, to redo the rest of that album."

Fast-forward to early 2018, McNulty entered Electric Lady Studios in New York with Campbell, Lefebvre on bass, who was in the รข˜… ("Blackstar") band, and Gabrels and Torn on guitars. All of the musicians had a history with Bowie, so were a perfect fit for what now sound like brand new songs. Muhly, whom McNulty first met when they were both interns working for Philip Glass in 2001, has handled the string arrangements.

The new re-workings have revealed Never Let Me Down as a very strong collection of songs with a dark thematic thread running through them. Fans listening to Never Let Me Down (2018) would be forgiven for thinking that they were listening to a brand new "lost" Bowie record. A radio edit of the new 2018 version of "Zeroes" is available now as digital single and will be released as a double a-side limited edition 7" picture disc, paired with a radio edit of "Beat On Your Drum" (2018), on September 7.

This 2018 version of the album will also feature newly "remixed" artwork reflecting the album's subject matter and features unseen images from the original cover photographic session from the archive of Greg Gorman.

Also in each box is the never before released Serious Moonlight live album recorded in Montreal in 1983. Originally mixed at the time by Bob Clearmountain, the double album captures Bowie on what at that time was his most successful tour. The artwork features shots taken by photographer Denis O'Regan.

Also included is the 2-CD/3-LP Glass Spider (Live Montreal '87) album, making its debut on vinyl (which is exclusive to the LP box). The tour's innovative set and marriage of music and theatre has been cited as a big inspiration to acts in the 2000s. Speaking in 1991 about Glass Spider, Bowie said, "It was the first time I'd had the opportunity to spend that kind of money and do shows like that! The first time since Diamond Dogs, anyway ... I thought, Right! Let's really spend some money! I had all these thwarted dreams of what I'd tried to do with rock 'n roll in the early '70s."

Exclusive to each box is Re:Call 4 and Dance. The former a new compilation featuring remastered contemporary single versions, non-album singles, album edits, b-sides and songs featured on soundtracks such as Labyrinth, Absolute Beginners, and When The Wind Blows. Dance features 12 contemporaneous remixes, some of which are appearing on CD and vinyl for the first time, and is named after an unreleased Bowie remix album that was originally slated for release in November 1985.

The physical boxed set's accompanying book, 128-pages in the CD box and 84 in the vinyl set, will feature rarely seen and previously unpublished photos by photographers including O'Regan, Gorman, Herb Ritts and many others as well as historical press reviews and technical notes about the albums from producers/engineers Nile Rodgers, Hugh Padgham, McNulty and Justin Shirley-Smith.

The CD boxed set will include faithfully reproduced mini-vinyl versions of the original albums, and the CDs will be gold colored rather than the usual silver. The vinyl boxed set has the same content as the CD set and is pressed on audiophile quality 180g vinyl. As well as Never Let Me Down (2018), Dance and Re:Call 4, both Serious Moonlight (Live '83) and Glass Spider (Live Montreal '87).

Richard Thompson unveils details of '13 Rivers'

New West
Richard Thompson's next album 13 Rivers is scheduled for Sept. 14 via New West Records.

It is his first self-produced album in over a decade and was recorded analog in 10 days.

In a prepared statement, he says each song "is like a river...some flow faster than others. Some follow a slow and winding current. They all culminate on this one body of work. The songs are a surprise in a good way. They came to me as a surprise in a dark time. They reflected my emotions in an oblique manner that I’ll never truly understand. It’s as if they’d been channeled from somewhere else. You find deeper meaning in the best records as time goes on. The reward comes later.

“I don’t know how the creative process works. I suppose it is some kind of bizarre parallel existence to my own life. I often look at a finished song and wonder what the hell is going on inside me. We sequenced the weird stuff at the front of the record, and the tracks to grind your soul into submission at the back.”

Hear “The Storm Won’t Come” and “Bones of Gilead” HERE. 13 Rivers will be available across digital platforms, CD, vinyl, as well as limited edition split cream & black colored vinyl available at Independent Retailers. Richard Thompson’s 13 Rivers is available for pre-order now via NEW WEST RECORDS.

Some history: Having co-founded the groundbreaking group Fairport Convention as a teenager in the 60s, Thompson and his bandmates helped invent a distinctive strain of British Folk Rock. He left the group by the age of 21 which was followed by a critically acclaimed, decade long musical partnership with his then-wife Linda, to over 30 years as a highly successful solo artist.

In 2011, Thompson received an OBE (Order of the British Empire) personally bestowed upon him by Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace. He has received lifetime achievement awards for songwriting from Britain’s BBC Awards, the Americana Music Association, and was awarded the prestigious Ivor Novello Award.

“1952 Vincent Black Lightning” was named one of TIME Magazine’s 100 Greatest Songs Since 1923. A wide range of musicians have recorded Thompson’s songs including Robert Plant, Elvis Costello, R.E.M., Sleater-Kinney, Del McCoury, Bonnie Raitt, Tom Jones, David Byrne, Don Henley, Los Lobos, and many more.

His massive body of work includes many Grammy nominated albums as well as numerous soundtracks, including Werner Herzog’s Grizzly Man.

Track List:

1. The Storm Won’t Come
2. The Rattle Within
3. Her Love Was Meant For Me
4. Bones Of Gilead
5. The Dog In You
6. Trying
7. Do All These Tears Belong To You?
8. My Rock, My Rope
9. You Can’t Reach Me
10. O Cinderella
11. No Matter
12. Pride
13. Shaking The Gates

Toad the Wet Sprocket update

Toad the Wet Sprocket will have remastered vinyl reissues of their albums fear and Dulcinea on their U.S. summer tour and online beginning July 18.

“For years, fans have been asking us to reissue our fearand Dulcinea albums on vinyl. Now, in cooperation with Sony Music, these albums are finally getting the vinyl treatment they deserve,” says bassist Dean Dinning.

“I personally supervised the remastering and vinyl cutting with Eric Boulanger and his crew at Bakery mastering in Culver City, CA. The vinyl masters have been cut on the lathe at half speed for maximum resolution, and then they are pressed on 180 gram vinyl.”

He further explains, “For fans wanting the ultimate Toad listening experience, these new vinyl editions definitely deliver. We are thankful to have our fans still with us from the time these albums were both initially released to now, and I hope you enjoy these albums as much as I did remastering them.”

Toad will continue their tour into fall with newly added dates to support their latest releases, New Constellation (2013) and The Architect of Ruin EP (2015) and will be performing fan favorites “Walk on the Ocean,” “All I Want,” “I Will Not Take These Things for Granted” featured on the multi-platinum break-through album Fear and “Fall Down” and “Something’s Always Wrong” from the follow-up platinum album Dulcinea. These tracks are included on All You Want (2011), which is available at shows and online.

Fans can secure VIP Meet & Greet packages with a ticket purchase which will include: one pre-show meet & greet with the band, one photograph with the band, one live acoustic song performance, one exclusive VIP tour laminate, one autographed tour poster and one premium reserved seat ticket (or early access to seating if a general admission show, where available).

Toad the Wet Sprocket also has new music coming this year and will be featured in two upcoming compilation projects. The track “One of These Days” will be included in the upcoming animated motion picture Animal Crackers, and “Nothing Can Stop My Love” is on the Roger Miller Tribute Album titled King of the Road out Aug. 31st alongside other notable artists such as Dolly Parton, Eric Church, Willie Nelson and Kacey Musgraves.
